MFV, Inc. and WizKids Games today revealed plans to bring the popular Mage Knight tabletop game to the online space and potentially back to comic and hobby shops nationally. Along with the announcement, the studios have launched a Kickstarter campaign set to run today through July 31, gathering fan and community support to bring their latest project to fruition. The goal is to raise $700,000 on Kickstarter.
Mage Knight Revenge is a tactical battles game that continues the storyline from the popular tabletop game, incorporating key game mechanics. The game is set to launch initially on web and mobile, with expansions on other platforms to follow.
Developers are inviting supporters to collaborate with them on key gameplay elements, such as factions and rules sets during the Kickstarter campaign.
As a bonus for players and fans, WizKids Games has agreed to bring back the original Mage Knight physical game based on community feedback, response and goals met on the Mage Knight Revenge Kickstarter campaign.
Kickstarter rewards include copies of both the digital and physical Mage Knight game, signed and framed concept art, physical Limited-Edition Mage Knight starter packs and bonus missions. Backers of higher tiers will have the opportunity to design their very own figure, add stats and powers and not only see their creation in game, but receive a 3D, hand-painted sculpt.
A complete list of rewards for supporters can be found here.
